Micross & Hi-Rel Labs, Inc. Offer One Complete Turnkey Solution for PEM (Plastic Encapsulated Microcircuits) Qualification

Micross, a leader in specialty electronics with 35+ years of experience in Electronics reliability testing and screening/qualification joins forces with Hi-Rel Labs, the premier authority & industry leader in DPA and Failure Analysis to deliver an unparalleled level of competence in PEM Qualifications.


The usage of COTS PEMs in high reliability applications provides many benefits to overcome the challenges of sourcing traditional full custom component solutions. The PEM qualification process validates a parts application performance by screening out unsuitable and unreliable parts through mechanical, environmental and electrical testing, as well as analysis of the construction of the device through DPA. The advantages of sourcing plastic COTS over a custom ceramic or metal solution include:

  • Greater selection of components
  • Lower cost of BOM
  • Smaller and thinner
  • Lightweight
  • Rapid procurement

Our complete PEM qualification services offered are based on NASA instructions (PEM-INST 001) as well as any customer-provided screening requirements.
